Six Nations Midgets shut out Pirates 5-0
OHSWEKEN – The Six Nations Intertown Midgets breezed past the Port Dover Pirates 5-0, Saturday at the Gaylord Powless Arena in downtown Ohsweken.
Six Nations out skated and out played the Pirates, but Port Dover kept it as close as they could for as log as they could against the powerful Blackhawks.
Just over three minutes into the game, Thomas Mt. Pleasant put Six Nations into flight scoring in close on Dover goaltender Seth Dewherst. Jake Smith assisted and it was 1-0, Six Nations.
Dewherst stood tall four minutes into the second period with an enormous save, only to be scored on in close, minutes later by Sandy Porter with Smith assisting, and it was 2-0 Six Nations.
Maybe the prettiest goal of the game was recorded by Raym Scott with an end-to-end, dips doodle trip through the entire Pirate team to score Six Nations’ third goal. Two minutes later, it was 5-0. Bradin Elijah made it 4-0, in close, and Kalem Hill made it 5-0.
There was no scoring in the third period.
Earning assists for Six Nations were Jake Smith, with two, Hunter Tobice, Zach Martin, Kalem Hill, Matt Miller, Sandy Porter and George Bomberry.
